Babayev said that Azerbaijan has prepared a number of project proposals in line with the requirements of the HDM Initiative, which will be submitted to the European Commission for financing. Projects have been prepared in such areas of the HDM Initiative as e-customs, e-commerce, e-business, e-security, e-health and e-trade.
